You don't remember 04 free agency? How he supposedly was about to sign with the Clips that night and sources said he was dead serious? Then the next day he signed the biggest contract in NBA history with the Lakers.

I remember Kobe expressing interest in the Clippers. Did he really want Iggy though? That's some high praise for him especially for a soon to be rookie (at the time).

I remember that actually... and honestly, if Kobe would have went to the Clippers, with Brand, Iggy, and Kaman there I think they'd of been contenders. Really even without Iggy they'd of been contenders. People forget just how good Livingston was before his knee injury. And Maggete was balling at that time too.

interesting, never heard about that. I think he would be the most hated Laker of all time if he ever went to the Clips.

he was charged @ summer of 03. never had war with the glove. Maybe sum arguement between him and mailman over his wife or watever. he changed his # to 24 begining of 07. the shaq trade was at the end of 04 after they lost the finals. the free agency involved him with the suns, clipper, bulls and the Lakers
